Projects: Intermarine 75, Intermarine 60

Brazilian Intermarine follows the announcement of its new strategy aimed at establishing an international quality renowned brand, and the showcasing of the new 55 project model with more upcoming projects all set to launch in 2011. Pictured above is the Intermarine 75 project which is designed by renowned architect Luiz De Basto. Measuring an overall length of 77 feet, the 75 is set to be in the water by mid next year. Here Intermarine and Luiz de Basto use there Mediterranean influences to create what is a European styled yacht both outside and inside. A flush main deck inside, and four double guest cabins all with personal heads characterize this very sporty looking motor yacht. The layout follows a traditional European plan with a welcoming saloon, open plan galley, dining table for eight, and helm station. Below is a full beam owners stateroom which features a walk in wardrobe, VIP suite to fore, and two double guest cabins in between. Impressive for this size of boat will be the crew lobby aft, which apart the two cabins will have a small L-shaped sofa, and a small galley with two burner stove and tub. Power for the Intermarine 75 will be standard twin MAN 1360hp giving 30 knots max, or optional faster choice of 1550hp which add top speeds by four nautical miles per hour. Designed again by a renowned architect this time by Brazilian Francesco de Almeida is the Intermarine 60 project. An interesting proposal the 60 has a Brazilian designer builder connection and as all the four projects so far presented by Intermarine new course is set to launch in 2011. The 60 will sit in the middle of the range between the 55 and 75 models. Interestingly going against usual production trends Intermarine has so far used three different designers for its project models; BMW Group DesignworksUSA for the 55, Franceco de Almeida for the 60, and Luiz de Basto for the 75. The 60 like the bigger 75 follows Euro looks both inside and outside. Its lower deck plan is a three double cabins all with private heads, and a two person crew cabin aft. As recent trends dictate the owners suite is a full beam mid ship affair, and a special note is that all three heads will have a separate shower box. The main deck saloon is a split level affair having a C-shaped sofa reserved for entertainment, and the raised part used for the galley, dining and a starboard located helm station. Special notes for the 60 project are the large glassed surfaces which make for a natural light filled environment inside, as is the well laid out flybridge and aft deck. For the 60 Intermarine have also followed a more normal size aft deck in line with current European trends. Tender stowage will be an aft up and down bathing platform. Power is twin Man 900hp which should give a top speed of 33 knots, and 28 cruising.
